The research design uses a mixed-method design, which is used to describe students' difficulties in learning English. The research subjects were 12 students. The place of this research is SMA Negeri 1 Batauga. The research data were collected through test and interview. Data were analyzed based on the type of analysis by Miles and Huberman—data reduction, presentation, and conclusion or verification. Based on the data obtained in the field, especially the results of test and interview, it can be concluded that the level of students’ learning achievement of SMA Negeri 1 Batauga is low. And the factor that affects the difficulty of students in learning English is the motivation or low interest of students in learning English. This is indicated by their indifference or reluctance to learn English. This reluctance has an impact on their mastery of English, especially English vocabulary and grammar as well as their reading and speaking comprehension skills. This is because students of SMA Negeri 1 Batauga rarely repeat English lessons at home and do not memorize English vocabulary gradually. The results of the interview also showed that the students' environment did not have a positive influence on students in learning. That includes English teacher and parental support.</p> Elisa Dewi Sultra, Baharudin Baharudin Copyright (c) 2020 English Education Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ https://www.ejournal.lppmunidayan.ac.id/index.php/english/article/view/364 Sun, 15 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0800 THE SEE SUBTYPE VERBS IN ENGLISH AND WOLIO LANGUAGES: A SEMANTIC APPROACH TO GRAMMAR https://www.ejournal.lppmunidayan.ac.id/index.php/english/article/view/365 <p>This research aimed to investigate See subtype verbs in English and Wolio languages: the meanings and grammatical properties. The research is descriptive qualitative research. The sources of the data in this research include events, information, and documents. The techniques of collecting data are observation and interview. The data were analyzed through some steps: data reduction, data display, and conclusion and verification. The result shows that the English See subtype verbs identified are <em>see</em>, <em>hear</em>, <em>smell</em>, <em>taste</em>, <em>feel, observe, notice </em>and<em> perceive</em>. While the Wolio See subtype verbs identified are <em>kamata, rango, bou, penami, namisi,</em> and <em>tuminda</em>. In the aspect of meaning, the Wolio See subtype verbs do not always have the same function with English in the use. Some verbs in Wolio language have more wide semantic range, such as ‘kamata’ and ‘namisi’. ‘Kamata’ refers to become aware of somebody/something by using of eyes either in a glance or over period of time and carefully or not. In addition, ‘kamata’ also can be used to see a movie, witness the accident, and observed somebody or something. ‘namisi’ also can cover <em>feel</em> and <em>perceive</em>. Though it is a transitive and intransitive verb at once, but the passive sentence of this verb is not allowed. In addition, this verb also does not have the imperative form when it refers to ‘perceive’. Contrast with ‘tumindaea’ that has more narrow semantic meaning. ‘tumindaea’ is just used to pay attention or notice somebody or his/her speech or advice.</p> Nur Melansari, Nining Syafitri Copyright (c) 2020 English Education Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ https://www.ejournal.lppmunidayan.ac.id/index.php/english/article/view/365 Sun, 15 Nov 2020 00:00:00 +0800 THE CORRELATION OF LISTENING COMPREHENSION TO THE STUDENTS’ SPEAKING PERFORMANCE IN EFL CONTEXT AT UNIVERSITAS DAYANU IKHSANUDDIN BAUBAU https://www.ejournal.lppmunidayan.ac.id/index.php/english/article/view/366 <p>The goal of this study was to find out the connection between the listening comprehension of students and their speaking performance.
